successful that even john boehner will consider becoming a democrat. after all, we have a lot in common. he is a person of color. although not a color that appears in the natural world. leaders of the republican party, they call the passage of this bill armageddon. end of freedom as we know it. so after i sign the bill, i looked around to see if there were any asteroids falling or sudden cracks opening up in the earth. turned out it was a nice day. they said we needed to triple the border patrol. well, now they're going to say we need to quadruple the border patrol or they'll want a higher fence. maybe they will need a moat. maybe they want alligators in the moat. lots of ups, lots of downs, except for my approval ratings which have just gone down. but that's politics. it doesn't bother me. besides, i happen to know that my approval ratings are still very high in the country of my birth. he seems all-american, but if you heard his real middle name, tim hosni pawlenty, what a shame. governor romney has said that he hoped a similar version of this plan from last year would be introduced as a
he talked about. he wants the leaders to lead the party. you think about speaker boehner, when he publicly says i can't corral, i can't stop the birthers from talking the way they talk, that's just their opinion. and you hear people like john sununu, who i thought was a heavyweight republican for years, using terms -- why doesn't the president learn how to be an american? it's not just the one line, it's lots of lines. >> you're absolutely right because the leadership of the republican party as most people see it is the leadership in congress. it's john boehner and mitch mcconnell -- >> and priebus. >> and reince priebus, and if those people aren't realizing the demographic realities, aren't realizing that the party has to be a big tent party if it's ever going to win national elections again, then where goeth the gop? >> let me tell you -- you're laughing -- the weird thing is you're turning off black votes if people vote, but you're also turning out the electorate, alex. the giddy part of this is, as you once said a long time ago, frank rizzo in philly, who wasn't too popular am
the majority of the majority has to be for something. basically boehner's dispensed that rule twice. but, look, when you look at those numbers for the republican party, i'm reminded of one of my favorite lines from jfk which you quoted on the show last week. if you ride the back of the tiger, you often end up inside. they rode the back of the tea party to power, and right now the tea party is dictating to them. if the tea party succeeds, for example, in pushing them into default on the full faith and credit of the country and the economy crashes, that 49% disapproval will be 69%. >> that's exactly what i was thinking about before the show tonight. who is in charge, the nra or the republicans? who is riding whose back? it looks like the republicans are riding the nra's back, and it's a dangerous animal. thank you. >>> remember the long lines in florida this past election day where republicans tried to make it difficult for people to vote? wait until you hear what governor rick scott is saying about it now. not my job, i didn't do that, don't blame me. this is "hardball," the place for politics.
for the continued suffering of these innocent victims, the house majority and their speaker, john boehner. >> we cannot believe that this cruel knife in the back was delivered to our region. >> it is the most disgraceful action i have seen in this house in the 20 years i have been here. >> the fact is this dismissive attitude that was shown last night toward new york, new jersey, and connecticut typifies, i believe, a strain in the republican party. i can't imagine that type of indifference, that type of disregard, that cavalier attitude being shown to any other part of the country. >> well, now the house of representatives tonight has a second chance. on january 3rd the house passed a $9.7 billion bill that would help pay sandy victims' insurance claims by replenishing the national flood insurance program. today the house votes, actually tonight, on the big money, more than $50 billion in sandy aid. joining me is new york congressman michael grimm who rents areas in staten island. thank you for joining us tonight. let me show you an ad run back in 1964 by the republicans -- the democrats, rathe
